Hi There . . .
Had an amazing install today ! Love my client's the Cordiero's . . Love that they had a blank slate and a lot of trust - cause I held everything in my shop until it all arrived, not long about 6 weeks !! Wanted one of those "ta-da" moments - and Brittany didn't disappoint.. I love when I see a happy tear or two !!
She came in for our design meeting and after some thought decided to go for the bigger sofa (and a little nicer with a down wrapped seat) which I love . . and it will last and last . . if you love something that much it is so worth it - just get it.
Take a look at our starting point . .
We chose to work in the blues, grays and neutral tones . . They have a long narrow room that lacked any type of storage - and they needed it . . We flanked two roomy and pretty storage pieces of old pine on either side of the sofa with sconces above.
A graphic gray and white striped flat weave rug anchored the space and two new blue chairs with fun beaded pillows complete the seating area. I styled up the mantle a bit with new frames and a visit outside to a big magnolia tree !
The dining room was where we had a little fun. They had a black table and chairs which I worked around. Added an oversized and dramatic chandelier, found a slim wall console - painted it and added a funky lamp and mirror.
The wall paper was a little on the pricey side so my sweet husband helped in re-creating the look with a hand painted version . . thanks Keith
The details do matter !!! Take a look at these gorgeous wall sconces. I love the mix of glam and rustic. It just added that interest and keeps things from being too ordinary - they're unpredictable !
A few new fun pillows and a great modern floral . .
And a whimsical art piece finishes the look off for the dog lovers !
Relax and enjoy your "grown up" space !
